ATL’s Heroes x Villains know Trap music. Not the kind of Trap your younger brother is making in his bedroom. It’s the kind of shit that Atlanta has born and bred for years. Put best by the Dirty South duo, “We’re only interested in making music you can fight or strip to.” Not a bad mantra whatsoever, and it seems to be doing them well as they’ve been commissioned by Major Lazer for an official remix of ‘Jah No Partial,’ due out on Diplo‘s Mad Decent next month. Big time roots n bass with this one.
After an amicable split in late 2012, Bot (ex Crookers) took to the studio to start a new chapter in his musical career; aiming his production sights at a new futuristic Techno sound. 11 brand new originals came of this self-inflicted studio lockdown, including a handful of new collaborations with Astronomar, TAI, David Heartbreak, and more. He’s put together a 24-minute teaser to give us all a taste of the new side of Bot, and it’s brilliant. Bot’s first release will be out this March on Mad Decent.
Major Lazer has become a movement. Amidst touring the world with their massive collective and spreading the noise, Mad Decent chief Diplo and his new partners in crime Jillionaire and Walshy Fire teamed up this year with UK bass aficionado Flux Pavilion to create “Jah Not Partial,” putting the Rasta spirit into a heavy dub driven anthem. The music video for the track premiered today, focusing on the life & times of the group at festivals and road trips far and wide. Oh, Mister Marshall…
Hailing from Stockholm, the 19th year old prodigal producer Phat Deuce as already dropped more than his name on the electronic music scene – and with releases already on Mad Decent project label Jeffree’s and Laidback Luke’s label Mixmash, he’s doing something right. As a token of gratitude for reaching 1k soundcloud followers, he is giving away his big bouncer “SHIT.” I know the name screams class, but fans of Diplo and Mad Decent styles will go ham for this one.
Anticipation for Clockwork‘s new Titan Remix EP has just burst – the italian powerhouse Congorock has just leaked his ‘Safari’ Edit today on the Mad Decent soundcloud, a FREE DOWNLOAD in all its 320 glory. The big room single gets a proper grinding from Congorock and his tribal bass influence, and it shows through on the resulting production. Hurry up and jump on this one, the download is only up until this Sunday, 11/25.

After an extensive party streak during ‘Halloweek’ we swore we would never drink again until, well – the very next Friday. So we know you weekend warriors are about to get on a hot one, so start things up with arguably the next “Booty Clap”. Miami duo GTA (JWLS + Van Toth) just released their newest single “Booty Bounce” on Mad Decent project label Jeffree’s. *Read their funny blurb below, and grab the FREE EP!
“Miami Bass has been murdered by the douches of South Beach for a few years now but two young Miami natives, JWLZ and VanToth aka GTA are putting Booty back in the bass of Miami. “Booty Bounce Feat. DJ Funk” leaves you unconscious wish visions of a fat ass swirling around your head, it’s been a wanted track for a while now since it’s been featured in Diplo’s sets all over the world.The B-side “Shake Dem” follows the same theme but this time adds tits to the equation, the rhythm of this tune is so catchy you’ll find yourself dryhumping something by the first drop.”
Rising from the ashes of his former alias The KiD – Kyle De Penna aka Neo Fresco has debuted his new moniker with a 4-track self-titled EP, yours for the price of… well, whatever you want. Whether you can donate or just support the Mad Decent young gun, the Neo Fresco EP is yours for the taking. The release features sharper takes on the “trap” music craze, as well as the hypnotic techno driven ‘Red Pyramid’ (my personal favorite). On top of that, it also includes a previously unreleased VIP from former collab with Korova. All good things people, support our boy Neo Fresco and pick this one up.
If you haven’t noticed, our homie Clockwork has been climbing the ladder pretty quickly in the past 6 months, with multiple releases on Dim Mak, a remix on Interscope, as well as a supporting tour for Felix Cartal and an upcoming tour with Dillon Francis. He’s also just signed a two-track EP titled Titan with Diplo‘s Mad Decent imprint due out on August 7th, and this morning Henry sent us over “BBBS,” the B-side of the release that is an absolute bassline monster. Stream after the jump and make sure to catch Clockwork on Dillon’s Wet And Reckless Tour this fall. √+Continue Reading
